First Words
Keepin’ it loose, freestylin’, adventure seeking, and having fun, while recapping the issue, Keith Mulligan breaks it all down to what’s really important.

Jean-Francios Boulianne brings his signature French Canadian flatland style down to SoCal for the winter…

Up Front
Sponsor Block, Injured List, and Fine Print… these are fast time we’re living in, and we recap what’s happened in the BMX world as of late.

Pro Q&A: Christian Rigal
Whether it’s filming, combing San Diego for spots, or assassinating the streets, Christian has plenty of insight for our readers and handled your questions the same way he does everything else—like a pro.

Twelve new parts you need to know about—including frames, wheels, bars, stems, pegs, and more…

Soft Goods
Be the first to show up at the spot wearing any of this fresh gear from Fit, Odyssey, Haro, S&M, Premium, Kink, Volume, Operativ, Demolition, Primo, etnies, and Vans.

Ronnie Napolitan clues us in on what’s puming through his headphones during a session, and we sum Animal’s QSS#4 They Too Crusty Wit It and Cult’s Talk Is Cheap.

Simone Barraco, Jason Enns, Jared Eberwein, Scott Powell, Kert Petersel, Nate Richter, Sean Morr, Mike Mastroni, and Dave Belcher make one Hell of Focus section!

Bio: Steve Kulischenko
Growing up in New Jersey and doing rollercoaster uprails are at least two reasons why you need to know how to pronounce Steve’s last name… “Kool-a-shank-o”—get it? Got it? Good.

Keep asking good questions so Ryan Fudger will continue to have an outlet for his witty and sarcastic sense of humor.

Finish: Pat Laughlin
The only guy in BMX who drives a yellow Ferrari also does backward Derek dusters and one-handed icepick grinds down rails. Pat Laughlin is a character for sure and his answers reflect that.

Tony Hamlin Interview
We were fortunate enough to tag along with Tony while he’s been hard at work filming for Kink’s new DVD Squash It. We ended up with a lot of laughs, a grip of sick photos, and an interview too.

Hillage To Pillage
Sandy Carson and Kyle Emery-Peck pedal their BMX bikes over 80 miles of twisty and hilly backroads from San Francisco to Bolinas and lived to tell about it.

BMX Files
Vasya Lukyanenko gets the once in a lifetime opportunity to session a space radar station inUkraine. Yeah, it’s as crazy as it sounds.

Riding Out The Storm
Hurricane Sandy pummeled the Northeast and left an unprecedented amount of destruction in its wake. Riders being riders, they quickly found  a way to session some of the newly formed remains from the wreckage. Making the most of an otherwise shitty situation.

Just For Fun Trip
Drew Bezanson, Mike “Hucker” Clark, Ronnie Napolitan, and Zak Early take advantage of the many fine offerings Oregon is know for, including surfing, camping, and concrete parks, of course.
